Leavenworth Sleigh Ride and Christmas Lights Festival
If you're searching for a perfectly picturesque and authentic Christmastime experience, congratulations -- you've just hit the jackpot. This journey begins at 7:00am, where you will enjoy complimentary breakfast snacks as you're ferried through the gorgeous Cascade Mountains to Red Tail Farm or Icicle Outfitters. There, you'll snuggle up under warm wool blankets as a winter wonderland unfolds before your very eyes in a custom-built sleigh pulled by Belgian, Suffolk Draft or Percheron horses, as it carries you through woods, trails, fields and snow-covered canyons. At the ride's conclusion, you can warm yourself by the fire, enjoy a hot cup of cocoa and pose for pictures with the horses, and then it's off to the nearby town of Leavenworth. In this quaint, old-world town, you're free to browse, shop and enjoy live outdoor entertainment and authentic German food purchased at street stands and local eateries. At dusk, the town promenade becomes home to the Christmas Lights ceremony (on Saturdays and Sundays only), as hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights come alive in a magical moment. Then just relax on your comfortable journey home and treasure the memories made over the course of your 13-hour Christmas expedition.
